The sexual abuse allegations against Woody Allen have not been supported by one of the family members, with Dylan Farrow’s brother Moses accusing Mia Farrow of abuse, rather than his adopted father.
Dylan Farrow penned an open letter revealing details of the sexual abuse she claims happened 20 years ago, allegedly at the hands of her adopted father Allen. Her claims have been supported by both Mia Farrow, her mother, and Ronan, her other brother.
Moses Farrow, a family therapist – is not however supporting her and says he can not only see the other side of things but that Mia Farrow was the abusive one.
“Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” Moses, 36, told People magazine.

ABC report him: “My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister. And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.”
Woody Allen, 78, and Mia Farrow, 68, split in 1992, after the director began a relationship with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Farrow Previn. Allen was never charged with any molestation and married Soon-Yi in 1997.
“It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces even though it was fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities. The one to blame for Dylan’s distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen,” Allen’s attorney Elkan Abramowitz said in a statement to CNN.
But Mia Farrow is asserting that Dylan’s claims are true that when she was 7 years old, Allen led her to a “dim, closet-like attic” and “then he sexually assaulted me.”
Moses doesn’t believe this happened to his sister.
And Allen’s lawyer, Elkan Abramowitz says that Mia Farrow is embittered and living in the past as well as brainwashing her children. Speaking on the “Today” show, Abramowitz said Farrow couldn’t handle her former husband getting a Golden Globe Lifetime Achievement Award.
